Pre Mastering Check List

This Checklist will help prepare for your Mastering session. This Checklist consist of information WaterFall needs to be able to make the Mastering process faster and more efficient.

Please list all info EXACTLY as you want it to appear on the CD Player Screen when a song is playing! Because songs are sometimes spelled wrong on purpose, whatever you write will be how it is displayed. Also, if you write as all capitals, it will display as all capitals.

PLEASE BE NEAT and ACCURATE!

Typical Turnaround is 2-4 weeks. Please call if you need it sooner and we will always try to accommodate if we can.

Very Important:
For best results, DO NOT add any compression, E.Q. or Limiting to the final mix. Individual tracks can be processed, but the Mix should not!!!

Formats Accepted:
Best:
16 or 24 bit .wav files (CD-R or CD-RW)
16 or 24 bit .aiff files (CD-R or CD-RW)

Use 24 bit if you recorded in 24 bit. Almost any digital based workstation will export to the above formats. (Pro-Tools, Sonar, Cakewalk, Cubase, Logic, Samplitude, etc.)

Good:
Standard Audio CD (The type you burn on your computer)

Worst:
Should only use if no other formats available!
Cassette Tape
Mini Disc
MP-3 File
WMA File

FTP File Transfer:
We will soon offer Same Day file transfer. Save overnight fee's and no customs problems for our overseas clients.
Absolutely No Loss of Quality!

Here's how it will work:

I hope this works for ya,
Ken Sutton
